A blend we have made up specially for smokers who have desired a rich, smooth, rum-cured tobacco. Its unique flavor and pleasant aroma have made it a favorite.

There is a slight soapiness on the char light, but it mostly disappears after a few puffs. I imagine that comes from the rum topping, which is mild and fairly flavorful, and doesn't interfere much with the tobacco taste. There's a light spice note that comes either from the rum or a pinch of perique; I can't quite determine its origin. The burleys have a little molasses hit with some nuttiness, and an earth note or two to prop up the cocoa. The sugary black cavendish must be mostly unsweetened because I really can't taste any vanilla, though I got a note of it here and there. Smoking this, I get the sense of the good old fashioned OTC burleys from past days - not too sweet with enough burley flavor to please. It's similar in strength with a little less sweetness than Carter Hall, SWR, and Half&Half with some of the same sweet notes, and the amount of cocoa almost reminds me of Prince Albert. The nic-hit is just past the mild level. Burns cool and a little slow with a mostly consistent flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires a few relights. Has a pleasant after taste. Can be an all day smoke.

First off, let me say for the record, B-94 sank my battleship in 1989 and I have never been the same since.

This is an American burley based blend so lovers of burley will probably like it more than I do. I have really enjoyed whiskey-cured tobaccos but this rum cured blend is not doing it for me.

It smells a bit sweet in the bag. I am still giving the 2 oz I bought a chance but 6 bowls in, the rum flavor translates to a fine hint of soap after-taste for me.
